Had a wonderful stay in Eugenio's apartment. It was very nice, all new and modern (even a real espresso machine), and SUPER clean. Interior looks just like the photos, and the outdoor terrace is fantastic for candle-lit dinners! We very much enjoyed the pool.
From the photos, I thought it was part of a larger apartment complex, but it is much more private than that, so a huge bonus. There are (nice) aparments next door to one side, but Eugenio's property is a private, gated property that only contains a large house (divided into this apartment, Eugenio's home, and another apartment) so the pool and yard feel like they are just yours.
The apartement is nestled in a little valley, and directly in front of the view is a little tree nursery with rows and rows of cypress trees, beyond that, hills with olive trees. You feel very "away" from city life, and yet the train station is right in the nearby town and you can go to anywhere quickly.
Eugenio was very friendly, helpful and kind. He and his family were wonderful hosts, made you feel like you were actual friends visiting. His daughter even brought our boys ice cream out by the pool one day.
This was a fantastic apartment in the heart of Florence with a fantastic host! A glitch in my credit card led to difficulties from the airbnb side for processing, but Eugenio and his lovely wife were very accommodating and understanding of the issue. I would recommend this property to others in the future! Thanks for a great stay.
